Honey production on Somes valley

Project Description

Heifer Project România in partnership with Agapis launched the bee project in Rus village (Salaj). Bee keeping is affordable for families with low resources, so the beneficiaries of this project were 15 needy families from the village, who shown interest in apiculture. The project will ensure food security and a source for alternative income. The project’s beneficiaries will have to build the beehives as they will receive the basic materials: wood, nails, paint.

The project was implemented under Heifer fundamental philosophy “Passing on the Gift” - this means that the first swarm or split from the donated hives will go to another needy family within the village.
